I can't believe the friends I have

Thursday started off as any normal day. I was just sitting at my desk at work, poking at what I'd have to do for the day, when I checked my personal email. The first thing I noticed was that [personal profile] fire_juggler posted to [community profile] amplificathon. Then I noticed that she'd sent me a DM, which I checked first. It said

Happy 5-Year Anniversary! http://ai-podfic.livejournal.com/33124.html Had we known that you would switch fandoms 2 weeks before, we might have chosen differently. But regardless, know that we love you lots and lots, and maybe you can have one last fling with AI before you go. *glomps*

And after reading it (while, actually), I promptly burst into tears. This was kind of awkward and two coworkers had just walked over and they looked kind of alarmed. It actually took me about half an hour to stop crying that morning. I kept working, which I think just made things weirder for my coworkers, as we discussed rebates and filing as I cried. :P

I just, I can't, I honestly don't even know what to say, you guys. I've been trying to write this thank you post for days now and I still am pretty speechless over the whole thing. No one's ever done something like this before. That I have so many friends that were willing to come together and make this for me (and a few others who tried or would have had they known about it) is just so amazing to me.

This is seriously the most amazing thing that ever has happened to me in fandom (and fandom is pretty amazing, so that's saying something). I haven't the preoper words to express how I feel, god.

I haven't finished listening to all my podfic yet, but so far everything has been wonderful and amazing and I love it all.

So, in conclusion, thank you so, so much to [personal profile] fire_juggler for organizing all of this, and to everyone else who contributed:
applegeuse, [personal profile] argentumlupine, [personal profile] bessyboo, [personal profile] crazybutsound, [personal profile] croissantkatie, [personal profile] dapatty, [personal profile] exmanhater, [personal profile] fire_juggler (again), [personal profile] fishpatrol, [personal profile] greedy_dancer, [personal profile] heard_the_owl, [personal profile] inkjunket, [personal profile] isweedan, [personal profile] letsgofriday, [personal profile] lunate8, [personal profile] klb, [personal profile] reena_jenkins, [personal profile] revolutionaryjo, [personal profile] sly_hostetter, [personal profile] takola and [personal profile] via_ostiense

Also to [personal profile] bessyboo for the cover, now all of fandom can see that ridiculous picture or me. :P
